Stroke Center Aces Survey

Cedars-Sinai’s Stroke Center has been recommended for recertification by The Joint Commission. 

The survey ended with the surveyor having zero requirements for improvement for the center.

"It was evident from the outset that our team was well prepared to highlight all that had been done since our initial certification," said Bryan Croft, vice president, service line operations. "Among many things, the surveyor highlighted our MD/Clinical/Administrative Leadership, our processes for quality improvement, our outreach to the community, and our 'passion to do what is best for our patients.'"

In addition, the Stroke Team will be awarded a Gold Plus Award by the American Heart Association. A presentation is planned for 3:15 p.m. on Nov. 10 at 3:15 p.m. in the Board Room.

The Gold Plus Award is an advanced level of recognition that allows hospitals to be acknowledged for their compliance of the Quality Measures within the Get with the Guidelines-Stroke Program. This is an optional award that a hospital may choose to pursue if they are collecting Quality Measures and would like to be recognized for their efforts.
